Russian River Ice Thickness and Duration

View Catalog Page

Entry ID

G01187

Summary

This data set consists of river ice thickness measurements, and beginning and ending dates for river freeze-up events from fifty stations in northern Russia. The data set includes values from 1917 through 1992, however the record length varies for each station. The longest station record covers the period 1917 through 1988 (the station table shows the beginning and end years for measurements at each station). Data were obtained through the U.S.-Russia Working Group VIII of the U.S.-Russia Bilateral Agreement on the Protection of Environmental and Natural Resources.

Quality

Quality checks performed at NSIDC were limited to checking dates for validity (for instance, there can not be more than 31 days in a month). If a date failed a test, the value was changed to 'missing' (99), and the original data were printed to an error file named err.nn, where nn is the station number.
